Chances of CityJet Avros still doing LCY - DUB in May ‘19

Sun Oct 28, 2018 10:37 am

So I’m now in full planning for my Western EU adventure. My main aviation goal on this trip is to fly on a 747 (BA PHX - LHR) before they’re gone.

A second goal though is to do at least one flight into or out of LCY. Originally I was planning on Flybe Q400 to BHD, that was until tonight when I learned CityJet is keeping 2 Avro's for the LCY - DUB route. I know most of CityJet Avros are being replaced with Sukhois, but I don't think they're certified for LCY or have anything else in their fleet that is, hence keeping the two frames in service.

I believe that as the trip is in about 6 months I should be good, but have also read about city jets recent ownership swap and wanted to get a sense that possibly throwing a wrench into my plans.

I’d love to add the smallest commercial 4 holer to my logbook.

Quite possibly given CityJet has just subleased 3 Avros over to Aer Lingus to cover that route. I've seen a picture of 1 in white livery with a green shamrock on the tail and green titles but it's not on here so can't link to it ;)

Incidentally I'm doing LHR-PHX later in the year ;)

Yes you should be able to book this via Aer Lingus, CityJet's last independent operations were today IIRC.

No, the service is dedicated to the 2 lsd. Avro RJ, you will find further updates on: http://wwww.thelingussource.com/

However, be aware, that the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has launched an investigation into this operation and might affect the entire operation: https://www.gov.uk/cma-cases/aer-lingus ... er-inquiry

Im also very interested in getting on this jet from LCY! As an American, would it be cheaper departure tax wise to fly to DUB from LCY then on to the US? I work for a major US airline so would I be able to nonrev on it through myID travel?
When wasn't America great?

They're going to be operating for EI for a while yet so you'll have no trouble flying them.

A bit more interesting is perhaps the Saab 2000 that Loganair operates on the London City - Isle of Man route on behalf of British Airways. The Saab 2000 is becoming a really rare aircraft. If needed, from Isle of Man you can fly Aer Lingus Regional to Dublin on the ATR 42.

I'm also now thinking of getting this flight on my trip in the end of May. I'm going to do a triangle route, i think.

LCY-EDI FlyBe Dash 8
EDI-DUB Hainan B787
DUB-LCY CityJet Avro
As of Dec 2018 I've flown 417,862 miles on 250 flights on 51 airplane types with 55 airlines traveling thru 97 airports in 43 countries. I've visited 59 countries. 2019 is looking like a pretty decent year for me.

A thought came up. How does one log this. Is it logged under Aer Lingus or under Cityjet?

From what I've read It seems like maybe Aer Lingus, as they've taken over the route in an official capacity and certain planes have been transferred to them, however, the crews will remain Cityjet.

Maybe log it as Aer Lingus (Cityjet)?

I listed my flights as Aer Lingus by CityJet.

I log it as 'Cityjet (operating for Aer Lingus)', since the aircraft is owned by Cityjet

What is the chance of having strong snow in IOM during Feb?
How bad will the operation of IOM and LCY during such weather?

I am considering to have a trip LCY-DUB-IOM-LCY but don't want to get stuck in IOM due to bad weather.
Plan to fly back to LCY on 9 Feb early morning and have a flight back to HKG on 9 Feb night.

Thanks

Snow is highly unlikely, the climate is too warm for that. If there is any snow it's mostly not enough to cause disruptions, but it's very rare. Winter weather in that part of the world mostly means rain and chances of high winds, but not too cold. Flights are rarely canceled due to the weather.

If you are doing this just to bag a Saab 2000 or something, you could go LCY-DUB-NCL-LCY. The NCL-LCY is all on the 2000. It's weekday-only, I believe.

There's more chance of fog at LCY than snow at IOM.

Thanks all for your reply. By the way, which runway will mostly be used at LCY during Feb as I want to sitting at the side that have the view of the terminal during takeoff and landing /
and better view during the approach.

Being an Asian, this is probably the once of the life experience for me, so I would like to well prepared for it. Thanks!
